## What is neuron simulator?

NEURON is a simulation environment for modeling individual neurons and networks of neurons. It provides tools for conveniently building, managing, and using models in a way that is numerically sound and computationally efficient.

### What is gK Max?

The K conductance when all channels are fully open (gKmax) was measured as the maximum conductance achieved with a very depolarised clamp potential. The stable K conductance (gK∞) measured at other clamp potentials could then be expressed as a fraction of this maximum.

#### How does neuron software work?

Neuron models individual neurons via the use of sections that are automatically subdivided into individual compartments, instead of requiring the user to manually create compartments. The primary scripting language is hoc but a Python interface is also available.

**How do you cite a neuron software?**

Please be sure to cite NEURON if your work results in publications. Carnevale, N.T. and Hines, M.L. The NEURON Book. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 2006.

**What is the Hodgkin-Huxley cycle?**

The Hodgkin–Huxley model, or conductance-based model, is a mathematical model that describes how action potentials in neurons are initiated and propagated. It is a set of nonlinear differential equations that approximates the electrical characteristics of excitable cells such as neurons and cardiac myocytes.

## How many parameters do you need to model a certain membrane conductance using a Hodgkin-Huxley formalism?

10 scaling parameters

Hence, a realization of a Hodgkin–Huxley model is defined by a list of 10 scaling parameters: <αn(v)>, <βn(v)>, <αm(v)>, <βm(v)>, <αh(v)>, <βh(v)>, , <ˉgleak>, <ˉgK>, and <ˉgNa>.

### Is the Hodgkin Huxley model linear?

Hodgkin–Huxley type models represent the biophysical characteristic of cell membranes. The lipid bilayer is represented as a capacitance (Cm). Voltage-gated and leak ion channels are represented by nonlinear (gn) and linear (gL) conductances, respectively.
